Ridiculously healthy, with its red leaves and snowy white ribs, radicchio has a peppery bite that brightens salads. It holds up well when cooked, too. Roast or grill wedges for a hearty side dish; pair with some Italian white beans; or chop and add to a raw salad. You can even add it to pasta.

Female-owned and operated, founder Malaika Spencer fell in love with farming early on in life, and dedicated herself to learning how to restore overworked land and ecosystems while providing the most nutrient dense produce possible. Because of this, Roots to River Farm aims to transcend the economic, ecological and cultural devastation created by the industrial agriculture system by providing high quality certified organic produce directly to its local community. They believe that good farming is a public service, and want to provide a product that is of the highest quality, the most nutritious, beautiful and affordable while also offering a connection between consumers and the farm. In addition to being certified organic they utilize resilient agricultural techniques such as reduced-tillage, intensive cover cropping, integrated pest management, occultation, contour tillage, and organic compost applications to create a farm that provides the community with incredible food while also nurtures the soil and ecology of our farm and the people who work there.
